Flight into Darkness by Sarah Ash

Buy: Kindle Store

The second volume of the Alchymist’s Legacy duology, a fantasy epic featuring two young mages—the impulsive Rieuk who accidentally frees a demon, and vengeful Celestine, who unknowingly becomes the demon’s protege. And now seven demons are about the wreck havoc on the world, and only Rieuk and Celestine can stop them.

The first half of the duology, Tracing the Shadow, is also available for the Kindle.

John Joseph Adams’ In 60 Seconds, akin to John Scalzi’s The Big Idea, features this duology and the ideas behind it.

The duology itself is part of the larger Tears of Artamon series, set in an alternate 18th century. The other books are also available on the Kindle:

  1. Lord of Snow and Shadows
  2. Prisoner of the Iron Tower
  3. Children of the Serpent Gate

The Mousehunter by Alex Milway

Buy: Kindle Store

Very illustrated novel, although the illustrations are in black and white, so this may translate to the Kindle well.

Emiline is a mousehunter in a world populated by extremely varied species of mice (who have, in this alternate world, taken over more than a few vital ecological niches), and sets off to hunt the legendary pirate Mousebeard.

The Annotated H.P. Lovecraft by H.P. Lovecraft, S. T. Joshi, Peter Cannon

Buy: Kindle Store

Also very illustrated, although the annotations should carry over well to the Kindle ((I actually prefer annotations on the Kindle, since they’re far less obtrusive than in the hardcover/trade paperback/whatever.)): yet another Lovecraft collection, but this time annotated all to heck by avid Lovecraft researchers S. T. Joshi and Peter Cannon, who show the devotion usually only privy to that of cultists of the King in Yellow.

There’s also An H.P. Lovecraft Encyclopedia available for the Kindle, put together by Joshi.

This actually looks to correspond to the first volume of annotated Lovecraft tales (the second is More Annotated H.P. Lovecraft).

If you can’t get enough Lovecraft, buy this book.

Highlander: White Silence by Ginjer Buchanan

Buy: Kindle Store

Ginjer Buchanan is more famous as an editor for Ace books, but she also wrote a Highlander novel, wherein “Duncan MacLeod, Hugh Fitzcairn, and Danny O’Donal get trapped in the frozen Yucan,” ((From Wikipedia.)) and apparently also an endless time loop.
